4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lovely orange colour. Floral hoppy notes. A great example of american influenced belgian beers. Very easy to drink for a 9% beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a big white head and lots of lacing. Love how this looks. Aroma of brown sugar, marzipan, sauteed apples, subtle citrus and grass, toffee, and alcohol vapors. Flavor of light brown sugar, toast, earth, bitterness, slight citrus, pepper, apples and alcohol. Drier than the aroma indicates. Finishes like a bitter, spicy and grassy marzipan. Slightly hot, but otherwise creamy, medium full bodied, and fluffy mouthfeel. It’s got some nice components, but I don’t think I prefer the way its hopped.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(750ml bottle thanks to mar) pours cloudy orange, thick and lasting medium tan head. Nose of caramel, candi sugar, sugar cane, citrus hops, rich and smells great. Taste is a lot more bitter than the nose though. Taste of pine, herbal, very grassy, bitter and citrus peel oils. Bitter finish, dry palate.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Si no fos una IPA la puntuaria millor. Però crec que és excessivament alcohòlica i llaminerament dolça per ser una bona IPA. L’alcohol es menja el Dry Hopping. Una llàstima.

Solid Brew! Pours hazy orange - yellow, with a creamy eggshell colored head. Smooth citrus hop aroma with nice caramel notes and a hint of belgian yeast. Very easy drinking, short sticky sweet finish with a slight alcohol burn.

33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, BBE 20/11/12
Came foaming out pf the bottle. Sweet, exotic fruits, in the aroma. Especially mango and honeymelon. Also some earthy notes. Lots of mango and honey melon in the flavour. No notes of belgian yeast. Rather bitter aftertaste. Good and not too sweet DIPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere, 20110719) The beer poured amber and cloudy with floating bits. Mildly gushing one. The head formed was medium sized and white. Aroma had exotic fruits, hops and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were exotic fruits, earth, malts, hops, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was mainly bitter. A very good Belgian DIPA.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
First triple IPA. Poured a nice hazy yellow, with a fluffy lil’ head. Smelled of yeast, hops and nutmeg - very floral and sweet. Tasted great, hops, alcohol, some vanilla and spiciness. Not really too complex - just damn delicious.
